Social Services Counselor Provides Assistance
In March the Tigard Library entered into a partnership with Luke-Dorf mental health center to assist people who need help with housing, health care and other services. A homeless outreach worker from Luke-Dorf will have office hours in the library on the first and third Tuesdays of each month from 10 a.m.-noon. People can make appointments or just walk in.
Luke-Dorf is providing the counselor. The library is making space available for the appointments. The library is also providing business-sized cards with information about the dates and times Luke-Dorf will offer the service, as well as how to make an appointment. For more information, people can call 503-726-3736 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Do Taxes Tax You?
The Library can help.
The federal government has been sending fewer forms during the past few years to encourage people to get their tax forms online, but we will have a limited number of the three 1040 forms and some instruction booklets for them. We will also have a binder of common forms and schedules that you can photocopy for 10 cents a page. Please bring cash for photocopies. We cannot accept credit or debit cards.
The tax deadline this year is Tuesday, April 18, so you’ll have a few extra days. The State of Oregon no longer provides hard copies of tax forms. Go here to learn which forms you need and print them out.
